A loan of $525 helped buy cases of beer and pallets of juice and water.


Catherine's story

Catherine is 60 years old, a widow, and the mother of six children between the ages of 30 and 42. She is a retail trader and sells items for takeaway.

Since she does not have a lot of capital, she can't satisfy her growing customer base. For this reason, she is asking for a loan to buy cases of beer and pallets of juice and water. This will allow her to grow her sales and income and take care of her family.
